Im looking at 3 bikes:

Solen cheater FC
WTP Envy
verde luxe

Right now im kind of leaning towards the stolen, i heard the parts on verde can be kind of cheap. Anyone have any suggestions, doesn't necessarily have to be any of those 3 just looking for a good bike. Here are some links:

Stolen: http://www.danscomp.com/101455.php?cat=BIKES
WTP: http://www.danscomp.com/101789.php?cat=BIKES
verde: http://www.danscomp.com/101506.php?cat=BIKES

Any suggestions would be great :D

you do know what the fc in the stolen stands for right?

minichamp31 03-13-09 05:59 PM

Freecoasterrr dawgg. But that Stolen is soooo nice.

Street rider 03-13-09 06:35 PM

i was just makin sure he knew... he might not want a freecoaster ya know... but i want that one hahaha im willing to shell out the money

minichamp31 03-13-09 06:42 PM

Haha I know. I just wanted to say that.

Street rider 03-13-09 06:43 PM

hahaha it looks soooooooooo sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

Should I get a FIT TRL 1 2009, 09' Felt Fuse now or wait for the WTP Recon and Trust bikes to arrive at my local dealership in mid April/May?

The FIT TRL 1 costs around $20 less than the Fuse here. At the moment, there are no confirmed prices for the WTP bikes, but they'll cost more for sure. Since I have to wait for a month or so for the bikes to arrive, I will be able to save more money to get either the Recon or Trust.

By the way, I'm 5'7 and 150 lbs.

Street rider 03-14-09 06:49 AM

the TRL 1 has a hi-ten frame=not good. the Fuse actually looks pretty good. and of course the WTP bikes are both good. my advice, is to go with the Fuse because both of the WTP's have a TT thats probably going to be too long for your height. go with the Felt

paul 46 03-14-09 02:10 PM

Cheers for the tip, looks like I'll be looking at bikes with a 20.5" TTL. I just went down to the bike store and two more bikes caught my eye: the 09' Felt Manic and 09' Hoffman Cirrus AL.

All bikes are full chromo but the main differences in my opinion are the rims and hubs (Fuse- Alex dm24 36h front (3/8), alex mus16 48h rear (14mm); Manic- Alex mus16 48h front and rear (14mm); Cirrus AL- Alienation Blacksheep 36H front and rear (3/8 and 14mm respectively).

Which one of these do you guys reckon that's most value for money?

Street rider 03-14-09 03:06 PM

im so glad that you look ask about bikes that are full chromo... between these two, i'd prob go with the hoffman just because it looks a little cleaner lol

and the axle size doesnt matter, its just a weight/strength thing that different people have different concerns about. respectively.

paul 46 03-14-09 08:01 PM

Alright thanks, I hope the Cirrus AL is still there next week.

minichamp31 03-15-09 08:25 AM

I like the Fuse the best out of all of them.

Street rider 03-15-09 03:44 PM

yea...out of all of em get the Fuse

minichamp31 03-15-09 06:36 PM

I think it looks the best, and it has everything you need. And it doesn't have stuff you don't need i.e. gyro and front brakes.

Motox4life 03-16-09 04:48 AM

whoa havnt been on the computer in a few days and yes i know it has a freecoaster but i don't know anyone around my area who has one so i wanted to try it out for myself if i don't like it worse comes to worse i put a cassette on. I have heard nothing but good things about the WTP and Stolen so il just take it from there:D

Street rider 03-16-09 02:53 PM

sounds like a plan. let us know which one you go with and tell us how she rides

Motox4life 03-16-09 04:22 PM

will do

Thank you. :thumb:

minichamp31 03-21-09 06:05 PM

It might be. Depends on how much he is interested in it. It's a lot less than other Jr.'s/Minis right now.

signalnc 03-26-09 06:05 AM
